Cotswolds Dry Gin has a delectable blend of nine carefully-considered botanicals. The juniper – coriander seed and angelica root are macerated in pure wheat spirit for 15 hours to extract as much flavour as possible. We then add locally-grown lavender from Snowshill the zest of fresh pink grapefruits and limes (which are peeled by hand!) bay leaves – cardamom seeds and black peppercorns Before distilling the lot in our bespoke copper pot still. The result is a classic well-balanced juniper-led gin with crisp citrus and aromatic spice. This gin is delicious on its own and over ice. Its robust enough to stand up to tonic and smooth enough to craft the ultimate gin martini. Because we use so many fresh intense botanicals in our gin the essential oils from these botanicals will come through when ice or tonic is added creating a pearlescent haze and bringing out the citrus notes in the gin.
